I know mail, sms, contacts and calender get backed up. Does what's app get backed up too?
So my main concern is losing my game progress for apps on card if I hard reset.
Any advice appreciated.
Your apps and games on the sd-card will be ok after hard resetting your phone. The problem is that your phone does not accept them and you will need to reinstall each app (and you lose the game progress unless the dev has integrated some kind of backup to OneDrive etc.).
In-App-Purchases will be stored if they are durable; consumable purchases are lost!
To mention WhatsApp: it is pulled form the store, so you were not able to reinstall it on your device!
